    Starting off a new month with C&D Yorktown in a brown straight smooth Paul Perri billiard with a black acylic tapered stem. Working and listening to the MLB talk on the XM.

    A couple minutes away from smoking the last of my stash of C&D Crooner in the very first pipe I ever bought ($2.49) in 1974; a smooth three quarter bend Dr. Grabow Omega with a black vulcanite stem.

    Fine choice of briar Jim.

    I haven’t smoked anything but Bengal’s and Margate lately. Amazing blends.

    Make aromatics great again.

    Smoking is groovy.

    Smoking can't be bad for you. It cures Salmon.

    Prince Albert in a LaSilvanah by Ascorti striaght rough Dublin, that they call a billiard. Maybe the chamber is more toward a billiard, but the exterior looks Dublinesque.

    Packed for later, after an Easter feast, C&D Bayou Night in a smooth bent Bari billiard; Bari is a good quality Danish factory pipe, now discontinued, gifted to me by my late wife's aunt many many Christmases ago. Meantime, eventually, roast lamb, asparagus, cooked tomatoes, and for dessert, creme brule.

    Now smoking Director’s Cut in a smooth straight early 1960s Lane era Charatan Executive Extra Large stretch apple with diagonal channel cuts on the lower right and left of the bowl along with a black vulcanite double comfort stem. This pipe was formerly owned by actor William Conrad. A bottle of Cheerwine made with pure cane sugar is my drink. Warm and sunny here.

    This warm Easter weekend was a good one for enjoying some really good smokes. Had all three from the Stokkebye Luxury flake range, and a good mix of other European Virginia and Burley blends. As the weather starts to cool in Aus, I'll gravitate towards Pease English blends..

    My first pipe of the day was C&D Habana Daydream in a Peterson Aran billiard.

    I’m now smoking Sam’s Mixture in a Missouri Meerschaum bent Legend cob. I mixed D&R Windsail with C&D Dark Fired Kentucky. I placed said blend in a ziplock bag, stuck it under the bed for a few weeks, and voila. It’s actually not bad.
